It was a joyous moment when I discovered Magazine Brighton had opened up a stone’s throw from my home in the North Laine, Brighton. Stocked with nearly 200 beautiful independent publications and a calm yet welcoming atmosphere- a credit to the wonderful owner Martin who bids a friendly farewell to every newcomer with “Drop by anytime to browse…”
And the story of his lifelong dream to open a magazine shop is so touching. Make sure you ask him about it when you visit. Magazine Brighton, 22 Trafalgar Street, Brighton.
